Can I cancel the DD and write checks to my employees for the same amounts

Cancel the Direct Deposit


Hi there, twinmillfarmsllc,

Let me share some insights about payroll corrections in QuickBooks Desktop.

You're able to cancel your Direct Deposit once the status is still pending. Intuit is unable to stop Direct Deposit processing if the status has been offloaded.

If you'd like to stop your employee's check from going through, make sure to cancel the Direct Deposit transaction before the cut-off time. Cut off or offload time for ACH transactions happens at exactly 5:00 p.m. Pacific time, 2 banking days before the paycheck date.

Check out this article to know more about canceling a Direct Deposit paycheck: Stop a Direct Deposit Paycheck.

Once you're able to void the Direct Deposit paycheck, you can now create a manual paycheck for your employees. Here's an article to help you with the process: Create paychecks in QuickBooks Desktop Payroll.

Please let me know how this goes, twinmillfarmsllc. I'm here to help you if you need further assistance.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
